Evacuation Insurance

Jump to last reply

My understanding of Evacuation Insurance is that should I need urgent care, and suitable hospitals are not available, the policy pays for me to get on a scheduled flight back to the US.

But Africa, on safari, presents a unique issue. If I am in a remote camp, and by that I mean one that I have been driven to, or flown into on a small aircraft, and I get injured, just what does insurance do. Who calls who to get a plane to take me from the camp to Nairobi, or Maun, or wherever I need to go to either get to a hospital, or to get back to the US?

Anyone have any experience with this, or have any insight into it?
